    Continuity And  Change Continuity And Change Presentation Transcript

    • Introduction to Continuity and Change Historical Thinking
    • Continuity and Change 1. Change and continuity are ongoing and ever present • In every aspect of our lives, things are changing and in other respects they remain constant
    • Continuity and Change 2. Change can occur at different rates • Change can occur at a slow pace that is almost undetectable, or can come about dramatically and suddenly • Dramatic changes are often associated with turning points in history
    • Continuity and Change 3. Change and continuity can be both positive and negative • Change does not necessarily imply progress, nor does continuity necessarily imply stagnation • New is not necessarily better
    • Continuity and Change 4. Comparisons can be made between points in history and between the past and present • Between and among historical events taking place at the same time • Between and among historical periods • Between contemporary society and earlier times
    • Continuity and Change 5. Periodization is a way of marking historical continuity and change • Historical periods or eras are defined by a significant element of change • Continuity connects different historical periods
    • How can I use it? Comparing periods: • Focus on changes — notice changes between two or more historical periods • Focus on constants — compare similarities between historical periods • Explore both changes and constants
    • How can I use it? Tracing continuity and change over time: • Identify turning points — trace the evolution of a theme over a period of time • Re-periodize history — divide history into periods using continuity and change as an organizing principle
